A really cool interface and graphics style

Was surprised that "TASE" was not a valid word.

especially considering sl*t is a valid word

ggs! nice game! :D 

It's so cute yeah

(+2)

Huzzah!

(+1)

a "creative game" i would say

(+8)

Fun and creative!

Would you consider making it possible to jump to any previously reached picture word by clicking it, to make it easy to pick a better starting point for a word you鈥檙e trying to reach?

It's a good idea

Genius

The unskippable tutorials are frustrating as all fuck.

Solved this over the course of three enjoyable days, each of which concluded with me going to bed and thinking about how to get to a word that's close to a word like "ACID" or "OGRE". In the end, it was "GOAT" that held me up for the longest, because I spent so long on other words! Full review/recommendation on my blog. Thanks!

A fun, but long game. Took me about 5 days to complete, but it was worth it!

Nice idea, nice game. Somewhat annoying to have to backtrack so far to get to the right previous word, and a bit 'same-ish' after the first 50 words or so.

Despite comments below there are no hard words. Iron is reached by icon and coin, quiz by quit and suit. I was expecting later words would be harder, but it didn't happen.

Definitely looks like the basis for Mk II, with new mechanics, better progression of difficulty and some kind of score.

worm

five hours and one dream. Fuck the QUIZ WORD.

馃榿

what a phenomenal game! Love it!

good game. have a french translation 

This is so relaxing man. Keep up the good work!

This game was SO FUN. Never imagined a game like this, but it's such a good idea! My last word was "quiz" :)

seems like the hardest words are quiz and iron

getting stuck on fart be like

I enjoy looking at how you can morph words into other words similarly, and I kind of want to try figuring out the optimal "route" for the fewest keystrokes once I have completed the game.

I got stuck on first word

10/10 game, i recomend it

What a lovely game! Thanks for making it.

(+1)

Thats a fun game, I like it. Love the art! :D

(+7)

Is there a way to look at pictures you've gotten before without needing to get back to the word? I wanna see the old images I got because the drawings are nice.

press escape it shows you an animation of all your pictures

amazing game

i cant figure out how to get iron, can anyone help

(+1)

you can try going to pron or icon first.

pron isn't valid

This game is perfect

love this!

I had a ton of fun with this game. My last word was Iron!

how do you get iron?

(+1)

I don't remember exactly how but I do remember it involved using the word "noil" which I didn't know was a word, haha. Hopefully that helps somewhat!

(+2)

so cute and fun

(+2)

great artstyle :)

(+2)

really addicting and a lot of fun. I feel like it makes me more of an intellectual just by typing small words over and over :p

(+2)(-1)

really good, took me about two hours to solve

(1 edit) (+1)

I wrote a python script to play the game for me :)

https://pastebin.com/jpzZU1jp
uses the fact that ubuntu has the dictionary at '/usr/share/dict/words' so idk what you would change to make it work on windows

(+1)

you beat me to it! I've got a python script in the works to calculate the smallest possible winning path that goes via all picture words

Did you make a script? If you did I'm interested to know how you solved it. This problem seems to be a version of the travelling salesman problem which means that brute-forcing a solution would take too long.

(1 edit)

yeah brute forcing would take a while, I'll never find the true best solution. But I've got a pretty good one that visits only 182 unique words to go via the 105 picture words (so it only touches 77 non-picture words), it uses a lot of undos which don't require you to visit any new words

This was a bunch of fun to come back to. I really wish I had read directions more thoroughly because I didn't realize you could rearrange the letter to form a new word. I just replaced 1 letter at a time until I got stuck on iron and ogre, then tried the game in chrome and read the directions and got the whole "rearrange existing letters to make a new word".  So...103 words solved just by changing one letter at a time... sigh.

I'm annoyed, I had so many words and now I have to restart :(

Admittedly not the best I've done in a puzzle game, but it's kinda fun once ya get the hang of it.

can you add copy-paste to the game? Beacuse I cant even get past without paste cuz my buttons are broken-

(1 edit)

You can use a virtual keyboard.

I am crazy and mapped keyboard keys to a game controller so I can type using the controller and never use the keyboard if I want. lol

A. Well thats true lmao

is fun i found 2 special word so far

(+2)

We finally finished after 3 days spent most of it on iron and quiz, can finally close the computer. Cute little game 

yeah idea was also a tough one
